This boutique hotel with only 9 rooms is a gem! It is located on the first floor of a building with no big signage but once you are in it, it's like home away from home. It's very near to Diagonal metro station and 200m away from La Pedrera. Beautifully decorated and friendly staff. Thanks Judith and her colleagues.

A very pleasant B&B, in an historical building, with very nice tiles. Staff very friendly, gives good information. The location is very quiet and very central. Very nice rooms and beautiful terrace ( room with terrace is worth it). Breakfast is Ok.

Nice rooms, decor and bathroom Great location for sightseeing Good public transport connection Good restaurants nearby Quiet And you can make it perfectly dark for sleeping long The breakfast is not anything special though. Could be improved with some fresh scrambled eggs or ham&legs

Signage is very small on the side of the doorway, nothing facing the street for taxis to find. Address given as no. 286 yet only visible no. is 288. No signage to say it's on the first floor ditto the lift. Rooms tasteful but not luxurious. Shower is in the bath so a little difficult. No place for clothes in...

This was perfect for our stay although it is a bit hard to find since the only sign is a small bronze plaque on the side of the doorway of the building. As others mentioned, it is necessary to walk up some steps to reach elevator from the building lobby. Circa 1905 is on the second floor. Our room was...

This charming hidden gem of a hotel ticked all the boxes for us for our stay in Barcelona. Beautifully appointed, you feel as though you are staying in an elegant French home.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
